Healthy Spirit, Healthy Marriage: The 4 Keys to Embracing an Unshakeable Partnership

Healthy Spirit, Healthy Marriage: The 4 Keys to Embracing an Unshakeable Partnership

Building a healthy marriage doesn’t always mean sacrifice. Oftentimes, it means reconnecting with your authentic self.

Every time I hear the phrase “perfect couple” I can’t help but laugh. Your favorite rom-com or the notorious highlight reels of social media may paint the picture that flawless couples are around every bend, but if there is one thing that rings true in just about every relationship it’s this: creating a healthy marriage doesn’t happen by mistake. Instead, healthy marriages occur when both partners intentionally take the time to create a physical, emotional, and spiritual bond that can withstand any storm. 

Four Keys to a Healthy Marriage that Retains Authenticity

You may just find that embracing your unique gifts while encouraging your partner to do the same leads to your healthiest relationship yet.

Key 1: A Healthy Marriage Has an Authentic Foundation

A common myth is that a healthy marriage lies in self-sacrifice and letting go of our natural tendencies and desires.  Some even question if they are worthy of the work it takes to create a happy marriage because their authentic self is so different from the authentic self of their partner. However, I have found that a healthy marriage doesn’t look like giving up your unique gifts and desires (so don’t you dare give up your quirky passions and interests.) Instead, it means understanding how to connect the diverse, sacred aspects of each individual, and that starts by ensuring your relationship is built on a solid foundation. 

Sit down with your partner and ask them what commitment, respect, friendship, and loyalty mean to them. Compare their answers with your own (and welcome laughter and playfulness in answers that may vary!) And remember, foundations take constant maintenance, so be sure to check in regularly.  

Key 2: Relationship Polarity for a Healthy Marriage

Is your partner the yang to your yin? No matter how similar you and your spouse are, chances are you both provide a different energy that comes with a wide range of tendencies and desires (and that is a beautiful thing!) Relationship polarity refers to understanding these differing tendencies, and the feminine and masculine energies that come with them. For example, I often see women taking on a “leading role” in relationships without allowing the masculine to provide the inputs necessary for a truly divine union. Conversely,  men often fall into the trap of failing to appreciate the nurturing qualities women provide. When this occurs, frustration and control can take root, which impacts other areas such as intimacy and parenthood. 

Healthy relationship polarity looks like finding the ideal energy balance for a thriving, healthy marriage.  This looks like the feminine energy allowing the masculine to lead when necessary, and the masculine remembering to praise their partner for their nurturing qualities. In this way, the natural gifts of each person are appreciated instead of shunned, and a healthier connection is embraced. 

Key 3: A Healthy Marriage = Interdependence

Every healthy marriage relies on supporting each other’s dreams and passions, but there is an important distinction between dependence and interdependence within a thriving relationship. Dependence implies the inability of either party to be whole on their own. Meanwhile, interdependence provides an atmosphere where both partners understand the importance of emotional connection with their partner, but maintain their unique identity. 

True connection and a healthy marriage can only occur when each retains their own personalities, passions, and beliefs. When the members of a relationship show up as authentic to their desires, they become world-class versions of themselves that embrace the skills and gifts and their spouse. After all, your partner fell in love with the unique individual that is you! Make sure you don’t deprive them of your authentic soul.

Key 4: Sacred Intimacy in Your Healthy Marriage

Here is a core belief I am willing to shout from the rooftops: sacred intimacy is more than just sex; it is a soul connection with your partner! Science backs this up, and studies have shown that emotional intimacy often increases sexual desires. That’s one way of saying that a healthy marriage with clear communication correlates to a steamier bedroom!

So what are the immediate steps a couple should take to take this soul connection to the next level? The recommendations I make to couples striving towards a healthy marriage are two-fold:

  1. Learn one another’s love language to help navigate both conflict and romance and
  2. Get clear on your goals for the future both in and out of the bedroom. (Here is a chance for you to be precise and explicit!) A mutual vision for the ideal sexual relationship can pave the way to a happy, healthy marriage (not to mention, a rockin’ sex life.)

Using Your Spiritual Connection for a Healthy Marriage

Stepping into daily relationship routines with a spiritual lens can provide a powerful platform for fully embracing relationship mastery. Instead of viewing challenges in your marriage as areas where sacrifices are needed, remember that authenticity is needed to help you create the healthiest version of your marriage (and yourself!) possible. So, allow yourself to be the weird, funny, playful being you are, and do the same for your partner. A healthy marriage may just depend on it.
